GM officially unveils the new Silverado, and it’s a beast

Chevy seems to have taken criticism to heart and given truck lovers the Silverado they want.

The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado was unveiled by GM ahead of the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, looking like a beefier cousin to its former self. The new Silverado is wider and taller than its predecessor but actually weighs 450 pounds less, reports motortrend.com.

This latest incarnation will be offered in eight trim levels: Work Truck, Custom, Custom Trailboss, RST, LT, LT Trailboss, LTZ, and High Country. The Trailboss line looks impressive, coming equipped with the Z71 package and a suspension raised up by two more inches.

GM won’t say yet which engine will power the Silverado, but it’s expected that the base engine will be the 3.6-liter V-6, with options for the 5.3-liter and 6.2-liter V-8s with industry-first technology that can disable up to seven cylinders when not needed. Mark Reuss, GM’s head of global product development, said the Silverado will get better mileage than similar competitors, although would not give exact numbers.

One of the cool new features is a power liftgate that drivers can control using the key fob, interior button, or by hand, an industry first. There is a larger corner step to access the larger truck bed. How big? The short-box has 63 cubic feet of volume and the floor is nearly seven inches wider.
